unixODBC Changelog

New in version 2.3.0

April 20th, 2010
  • Try and rationalise the way the connection process find the driver version and supported functions
  • Sort out problem in isql with blank lines
  • Stop libthread from being used under AIX
  • Move the GUI parts off into a new project http://sourceforge.net/projects/unixodbc-gui-qt/
  • Strip out the GUI parts. I have also removed the spec files as they will need redoing,
  • Move the Test parts off into a new project http://sourceforge.net/projects/unixodbc-test/
  • Add interface into odbcinstQ to allow for a dialog if SQLDriverConnect is called without a DSN= (as the MS spec)
  • Allow the setting of a default Threading level in the ODBC section of odbcinst.ini
  • Change double format string in Postgre7.1 driver
  • Add missing CR to output of odbcinst
  • add fixes to MiniSQL driver
  • Add missing .y in nn driver, now I need to get it to work
  • Assoured bux fixes and format problems, thanks Tom
  • SQLBindCol on metadata calls was incorrectly going via the cursor lib if it
  • fix isql problem with nested definitions. was enabled
  • Add configure option to enable building of driver config libs
  • Shift build to using config.h, the compile lines were so big it was hard to see warnings
  • Fix bug in isql when using -b option.
  • Check attribute values when setting connection and statement attrs
  • Check for valid pointers in SQLGetInfo(W) and SQLGetFunctions
  • Add extra checks for states in SQLCopyDesc
  • Add --enable-stricterror option to allow compliance with the error reporting definition, driver errors don't have the unixODBC prefix

  • Extra error check for SQLPutData
  • Check handle type in SQLEndTran
  • Prevent seg fault if there are no driver error functions
  • the -n option to isql was not working correctly
  • Stripped out all the bespoke LDTL configure stull, not just what libtoolize provides
  • Fix problem where ansi_to_unicode_alloc didn't leave space for the NULL and could cause memory corruption
  • Add the ODBC 3.80 additions that MS have produced. I am sure I remember the standard being given to XOpen, what do I know
  • Change the file open mode for the ini file from w to w+ just in case the original open failed but the file did exist
  • Fix configure problem preventing the CHAR encoding from being passed
  • Remove white spave from ini write, not all drivers use unixODBC ini functions and can handle the spaces
  • Update config.guess to current GNU version including support for AIX6
  • Create SVN repository at sourceforge
  • Add cast to fix problem in SQLSetConnectOption
  • Fix SQLINTEGERSQLLEN conversion broblem in SQLNativeSQL
  • Fix bug that stopped setting SQL_ATTR_CONCURRENCY to SQL_CONCUR_VALUES

  • Remove unintended trailing white space from log generation

New in version 2.2.14 (November 21st, 2008)

  • Fix problem with SQLGetDiagRec/Field returning double driver errors
  • odbctest was using the wrong handle for SQLGetConnectOption
  • remove startup thread race condition
  • fix descriptor memory leak with UNICODE only drivers (thanks Ian)
  • Alter the default 64bit build mode, and change the flag to BUILD_LEGACY_64_BIT_MODE
  • Fix a couple of 64bit problems
  • create unixodbc_conf.h on install to contain compile settings
  • Allow the GUI parts to build with qt4
  • try and deal with drivers that call internal W functions and end up in the driver manager (informix for example). Enabled by --enable-handlemap=yes when configuring
  • Fix leak of iconv handles
  • Allow the setup API to call through to the wide driver functions
  • Fix potential seg fault in SQLGetPrivateProfileString
  • Fix a couple of broken casts, and some MS 64bit changes
  • Add check for postgres driver getting into a spin wait
  • Fix logging that reported the setting of env attrs failing
  • Add isql option to wrap strings with quotes
  • Add isql option -3 to make isql use ODBC 3 calls instead of 2
  • Add timestamp to logging output

  • Add include path to odbc_config --cflags output
  • Fix some SQLLEN/SQLINTEGER conflicts in the cursor lib
  • isql now checks if the driver has SQLMoreResults before calling it
  • A couple of tweeks in the txt driver
  • Fix More than 1 log msg relevant in odbcinst now
  • Changed UI plugin technique for odbcinst see... ODBCConfig > main.cpp, and odbcinst > SQLManageDataSources.c and odbcinstQ4 > SQLManageDataSources.cpp
  • Add more 64 bit changes, remove SQLROWCOUNT and its frends from 64 bit land
  • Couple of descriptor typo's fixed (Thanks Jess)
  • Add odbcinstQ4 to support pure Qt4 SQLCreateDataSource and SQLManageDataSources
  • Add ODBCCreateDataSourceQ4 as Qt4 based exec to SQLCreateDataSource
  • Add ODBCManageDataSourcesQ4 as Qt4 based exec to SQLManageDataSources
  • Add "-c" option to odbcinst to call SQLCreateDataSource
  • Add "-m" option to odbcinst to call SQLManageDataSources
  • Add ODBCDataManagerQ4
  • Add Wrappers (C++, QtCore 4, QtGui 4 - thin wrappers to ODBC)
  • Add more complete set of driver config options to GUI config
  • Fix incorrect export file in odbcinstQ
  • Added some extra features to isql (thanks to Ron Norman for the ideas)
  • Add diag support lib for driver development and possibly DM This is very 'black-boxed' on purpose.
  • Fix Replaced diag code in txt driver to use new diag lib.
  • Add New odbctrac library.
  • Add Threading can not be config via Qt(4) based GUI
  • Add New ODBCString library.
  • Add odbcinst.ini -> ODBC -> TraceLibrary and corresponding GUI Qt(4) config.
  • prevent the cursor lib from seg faulting if the query isn't a select
  • Add SQLULEN size display to the output of odbcinst -j
  • Add mutexes in odbcinst/_logging.c
  • Remove the MySQL Driver, its woefully out of date now
  • Remove incorrect path in vms_odbc.opt
  • rename trace.h to odbctrace.h to avoid potential name conflicts and move to include dir
  • update unixODBC.spec file
  • Add README.CYGWIN
  • Fix build problem with QT4 without QWizard support
  • Alter how the Ansi-Unicode mapping is done, so a unicode function can be passed to the driver (if it supports it) even if a non unicode connect was done
  • Fix buffer overrun in SQLDriverConnectW and SQLColAttributesW
  • I have cut back on a lot of the GUI parts that are being added. The goal is to create a distinct set of files that contains these and other parts that are not part of the core goal of providing ODBC. Likewise the drivers will go on the next release, as most DB's now have their own folk working on their drivers and they all interoperate with unixODBC so its just adding confusion including them here (IMHO that is)
  • Prevent a potential buffer overrun in the DM
  • The processing of --enable-rtldgroup had been dropped, back now
  • Allow the cursor lib to handle multiple result sets

New in version 2.2.13 (November 18th, 2008)

  • Many bugs were fixed, but the most important change is to switch the default way the driver manager builds on 64-bit platforms with sizeof(SQLLEN) equal to 8.
